     Sorry, but the conlusion of your review lacks the relation of an iPad to Convertible Tablet PC. I highly doubt that those can be compared. First, iPad meant to be for the consumer market (there are exceptions but very small percentage) as the Convertible Tablet PC is supposed to support students, teachers, sale, stock management and all the other PRODUCTIVE people out there. Second, as it can not be categorized as an Netbook (in fact it has the size of an Sub-Notebook) and therefore suits as a normal notebook as well! Or do you seriously claim all those shiney tablets to be capable of writing long letters, essays, reports or even theses?
    So what’s missing in your report further more? Outdoor capabilities, fan noise, heat, pen accuracy… you should work on that!

      You need to ask yourself, what is the point of making a laptop convertible into a tablet? It is too heavy to carry around in your arm, you are not going to write an essay it. I can only think that you could use it for drawing, or gaming. However, give an iPad a full size keyboard, and you can bet that it can be used to write a long letter. In fact, I have an Asus Transformer tablet with the keyboard dock and I use it all the time for writing. I have not picked up my laptop ever since I got the Transformer. So my conclusion is not just speculation, but the result of first hand experience.

         The fact is that you use a convertible for both. Drawing on the screen for taking notes (meetings, university, school, doing presentations and so on) and having a notebook which may weigh a little more than a normal Sub-notebook at the same time. I mean what’s the point of having a poor slate with touch only (that’s what you referring to I guess) and taking a bulky, unhandy keyboard (dock) everywhere you go? Doesn’t make sense to me. I never said it is usefull for everyone but comparing an iPad (mass market product) to an Convertible falls short. Please do not doom it because it most certainly won’t!

          I’m not dooming it, but how many college students want to carry around a heavy, bulky and expensive laptop just for taking notes? A tablet like the Asus Transformer + keyboard dock is much lighter, much less expensive and the keyboard is anything but unhandy. Google the transformer and take a look at the pictures, it is very slick. And yes carrying around the Transformer + dock makes a lot more sense than carrying around a laptop. The Transformer has HDMI out so that covers presentations, SD card slots (yes it has more than one), and everything else is covered with either the keyboard, or the touch screen.

          Also windows makes a horrible touch experience. Maybe Windows 8 will be better, but I am not holding my breath. One of the best things about Android and iOS is that everything is built around touch.

          Tablets are getting more powerful. The Tega 3 tables with quad cores are smoking fast and you can do just about anything short of compiling huge programs, and rendering video.

          You really need to try out a quality tablet like the transformer (not the prime) with its keyboard and then come back and comment about how poor it is.

    Too much copy and paste from the 2740p-review? Exactly the same benchmark-results and runtimes despite the new chips inside the 2760?

      You might what to take a closer look at the screenshots before you make uninformed comments. You will see that the dates are different, and even the performance scores are different. I don’t make up the results, I just report on them.
